Pineville (La.) four-star offensive guard and TCU commitment Cody Ford has been busy over the last few weeks with a couple of camp stops to close out the summer.
He attended Big Dawg Camp at Mississippi State a week ago and left a favorable impression. On Friday, he was in Baton Rouge for LSU's camp hoping to do the same thing.
"It was a great experience I got working with coach Grimes and meeting Les Miles," Ford said. "But I didn't perform as I hoped I would and I didn't get the offer I was looking for.
"He just told me now it's up to my film," Ford said. "I have put great product on film and we'll see where it goes."
Ford committed to TCU in late January, but a couple of offers have made him think over his options.
"I'm committed to TCU but obviously you've heard about Oklahoma and Mississippi State," Ford said. "So I'm going to sit down and talk to my parents and coaches, and just think about it. I'm trying to have a strong, firm commitment within the next two weeks."
Where do things stand right now with his commitment to the Horned Frogs?
"They're still at the top of my list, but with all these schools coming in, especially Oklahoma, it will be a hard decision," Ford said.
In fact the coaches from Mississippi State and Oklahoma have worked hard to establish the strongest relationships with Ford at this point.
"Coach Hevesy from Mississippi State, we always talk a lot," Ford said. And then coach Bedenbaugh, we talk a lot too."
As for TCU, it appears things have fallen off a little bit.
"It's there, but when I first committed it was strong, and ever since Oklahoma and them have come in the picture it's been dying down," Ford said.
Ford's trip to Baton Rouge is his final trip of the summer, but he does have a few visit plan for the fall.
"I'm going to take my official visits to TCU, Oklahoma, Mississippi State, and I haven't decided the other two," Ford said.
He does not have any official visits scheduled right now.
Ford is currently a four-star prospect ranked No. 18 among the nation's offensive guard and the No. 13 ranked prospect in the Louisiana Preseason Top 50.
